Medical Malpractice & Brain Injuries
Oklahoma City Medical Malpractice Attorneys
A person may sustain a brain injury due to trauma to the head or body or as the result of a lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain. In either of these situations, a victim may experience lasting consequences and an entirely changed life. Traumatic brain injuries and those sustained due to lack of oxygen to the brain may be caused by, related to or worsened by medical malpractice in certain situations.
Common Brain Injuries
An Oklahoma City medical malpractice attorney from our team at the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote can talk to you about the potential medical malpractice claim you have on your hands if you or a loved one suffered a brain injury that was caused by medical malpractice, misdiagnosed by a medical professional or worsened by improper treatment or care.
- Most of the brain injury claims we handle in this regard are related to one of the following two conditions:
- Anoxic brain injury - characterized by a total loss of oxygen to the brain, this type of brain injury may be caused by physical trauma or cardiac arrest. A victim may experience loss of cognitive skills and other permanent disabilities.
- Hypoxic brain injury - this type of brain injury is caused by a partial loss of oxygen to the brain. Hypoxic brain injury may cause a victim to experience permanent cognitive disabilities and issues with motor function and overall emotional wellbeing.
